What this course will cover:

During this module you will learn all you need to work cleanly with a coachee throughout a complete coaching session.

We will cover:

  • How to explain Clean Coaching to a client so as to arouse curiosity and set appropriate and realistic expectations.
  • How to ask Clean questions so they land deep – covering pace, pauses, tone and emphasis.
  • How to start a Clean Coaching session, quickly clarifying both the coachee’s outcome and current situation using visual, verbal and spatial representation.
  • Enabling the coachee to construct a powerful 3 dimensional ‘map’ of their situation that they can physically move in and around, gaining new perspectives and trying new positions that stimulate mental reframing and encourage creative insights to emerge.
  • Grove’s theory of people change: ‘The Six Steps to Freedom’ concept – incorporating networking theory, systems thinking and the power of iteration.
  • A step by step process to facilitate change: ‘Clean Networks’ – easy to implement and practical in almost all kinds of coaching situations, the process can be adapted for groups as well as individuals and offers a flexible, creative way to work with all kinds of people on any kind of outcome.
  • Clean action planning – how to end a Clean Coaching session with extremely clear and defined action steps, that the coachee creates for themselves, takes complete ownership of and is highly motivated to follow through on.
  • What to do in a client ‘emergency’
  • The qualities required for working “Cleanly” as a coach – and how to foster them in yourself

What is Clean Coaching?

Most coaches today see their role as mainly non-directive, helping to uncover their coachee’s own wisdom. However, coaches may unwittingly and unconsciously constrain what their coachees talk and think about, getting in the way of unique, self-generated solutions. Clean Coaching provides a different, simple yet highly effective approach to one-to-one facilitation. It is a style, strategy and set of techniques that help coachees gain insight and make changes through discovering more about their own ‘insider’ perspective: of themselves and the world around them. Through the use of specifically-phrased, structured coaching questions, the coach’s own biased perspectives are stripped from their language, ensuring the coachee’s unique personal experience is honoured.

The late, great New Zealand Psychotherapist David Grove developed Clean Language and other ‘Clean’ approaches from the mid-seventies onwards. Along with renowned performance coach Carol Wilson, in 2004 they defined his techniques into a methodology that could safely be used by coaches, which were developed into a series of training courses.

Angela Dunbar joined the Clean Coaching Centre in 2006 working alongside David Grove and Carol Wilson until David’s untimely death in 2008. Since then, Angela has been at the helm of the Clean coaching Centre and, along with trusted partners,. facilitates and manages all the current online training offerings.
